Smokey Sunrise in Vancouver
Posted by castelnuovo on Sunday, August 06, 2017 12:42 AM

Took these photos this morning about 7am. The visibility is reduced due to thick smoke from forest fires. If you zoom in to the first photo you can see a sunspot at the bottom half of the Sun.

Very Bad, I hope all residents/fighfighters and animals are safe

The following is a picture taken in the early afternoon in 2003, during one of the worst bushfires in Victoria, Australia history. The ash was so thick is turned day into night for several hours.

Our air here on the dry side of Washinton state, looks similar, tough to be outside even for us who don't have breating issues. Kinda makes it feel hotter than the 95* F temp. That sunspot is verry cool, I wonder though if it may not be Mercury transiting.

Willamette Valley in Oregon has been getting some of the Canadian smoke, as well as even more from a fire about 40 miles from me.  Mid week was down to 1/4 mile vis on the ground, but wind shifted and gone for now, but due back first of the week.

Our fire went fron 300 to 1500 to 4500 acres in just a couple of days, and from 10% contained to 0% as it jumped lines.  Most of it is in a designated Wilderness area, so hands are tied as to most effective suppression methods.

Much of western Montana is burning now and this morning's reports are disheartening. The Pine Ridge fire by Seeley Lake has now grown large enough that the fire officials have warned that it will continue to burn until the first significant snowfall of the season, which usually comes in late October.

While the smoke here is bad it has been worse, a couple years ago when most of Okanogan county was on fire, us here in Spokane Wa. could barely see past the hoods of our cars. They say Mt. Saint Helens was worse, I was here for that too and I would take ash over fire ash anyday.
